              Flight Design USA distributor Airtime Aviation (http://www.airtimeaviationus.com) delivered the 200th CT sold in the USA to new Flight Design dealer Brian Longwill of Albuquerque, New Mexico. In addition to representing sales of the best-selling Light-Sport Aircraft (LSA), Longwill will base his CT operation at a new LSA, taildragger, and general sport-flying airport he is opening in Estanica, New Mexico (east of Albuquerque, south of Moriarty).
             Airtime Aviation, operated by a father and son team both named Tom Gutmann (Senior and Junior), was the first to gain FAA approval for CT on April 15th, 2005. CT was the second LSA to win approval in the USA and it has since gone on to win the favor of pilots earning a leading 21% market share.

            Airtime Aviation serves a number of south central U.S. states as the distributor of Flight Design aircraft. Part of their job is establishing dealers in their territory. And, in a fascinating bit of timing, the number 200 sale of the CT nationally is also the 50th CT delivered by Airtime. The Tulsa, Oklahoma-based distributor is one of most successful sellers of LSA in the country.

            “We congratulate Tom Gutmann Senior and Junior on delivering CT number 200,” said Tom Peghiny, president of national importer Flight Design USA. “Great work by the Gutmanns, Airtime, and our other distributors has convincingly built the CT into the country’s most successful LSA. “We have registered more CTs than the number three, four, and five sellers of LSA combined.”

            The customer for the number 200 CT, Mr. Longwill is himself a highly accomplished aviator. A 20-year airline veteran and Boeing 767 captain, Brian previously flew F-15 and F-16 fighters. He has worked with city officials in Estancia (Spanish for “ranch”) to complete work on the new E92 airport. The new location will be valuable to help train new and returning pilots interested in the new LSA aircraft segment. Brian refers to the new Estancia airport as a home to “grass-roots flying.”
